Furthermore, Dharmendra Mishra said, “In August, I came across 15 Twitter handles, including that of Anand, that were constantly abusing the CM and the Cabinet minister. The accused kept making false allegations by posting offensive and abusive comments on social media. The allegations made by them are that the chief minister and Cabinet minister were involved in actor Sushant Singh Rajput and Disha Salian’s death.”
The accused has been alleged to disturb public law and order, and to promote the feeling of enmity and hatred against the current government.
